They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. London Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. was held. I personally didn’t expect to see a great Polyglots turnup there, since it’s an English-speaking country. You can imagine my surprise when we ended up with a team almost as big as CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.’s team!

Let me show you…

Working on German translations (#de_DE), we had @kau-boy, @soean, @travel_girl and @00Sleepy.

Spreading the love for Afrikaans (#af) was @semblance_er. @gomp was helping the Polish-speaking community (#pl_PL), while @katjazalokar took care of Slovenian (#sl_SI). We can add more languages to the list, because @shakoof was working on hebrew (#he_IL), and @awesomesaurus and @andizer took care of Dutch (#nl_NL).

This contributor day also reminded me that I still do not know all existing languages, because we had @kel-dc translating the release video and WordPress into Tagalog (#tl), a language I might never have seen before..
Unfortunately I forgot to mention here at the closing of the contributor day, so hereby my apologies for that and a special thanks to @kel-dc for all the hard work!

Of course, I hope you’ll all continue to translate WordPress, and I really hope to see you on the WP Translation Day!
